Territorial Road Project
Launched For Honolulu
HONOLULU, July 5. - (R)-While
Gov. Joseph B. Poindexter is in
Washington seeking $1,000,000 Fed-
eral funds for a new military highway
connecting Schofield barracks with
the sea on the west, a territorial road
improvement plan to cost $2,947,000
will get under way.
Governor Poindexter hopes to ob-
tain Federal funds for the entire cost
of the new Schofield road on the
ground that it would be primarily a
military thoroughfare. It would cut
through Kolekole pass of the Waianae
mountains providing a sea outlet for
Schofield barracks, largest military

post in the United States.

Mrs. Vibbert
Talks Before

La Rochelle, France, was the sub-
ject of a talk given by Mrs. Charles
B. Vibbert at the second meeting of
the Summer Session French Club,
held recently at the Union.
Mrs. Vibbert discussed the position
of the city as a fortress of the French
Huguenots until its power was brok-
en by Louis XIII and Richelieu.,when
many of the Huguenots took refuge
in America and Canada, founding the
city of New Rochelle, N. J.
Charles E. Koella of the French
department, director of the club, gave
a short talk on the celebration of the
Fourth of July. Mr. Koella also pre-
sented to the club the officers recently
elected. Winifred Hall, '33, was chosen
president; Ramon I4ercado, '33; vice-
president; Eula DePriest, '33, secre-
tary; and Harlow Stevens, '34, treas-
urer.
About 40 students attended the

I In New Cache
Huge Kentucky Army Post
Is Selected As Site For
Underground Vault
WASHINGTON, July 5 - (W) - A
33,000-acre army post, described of-
ficially as the biggest training ground
for soldiers during the World War,
is about to return to a place of first
national importance after 16 years
of comparative obscurity.
In Fort Knox, Kentucky, sprawling
now as a mere skeleton in the center
of a huge reservation ┬░that during
war-time sent forth thousands of
men, the government is planning to
build an underground vault for the
safekeeping of gold worth billions of
dollars.
The fort, established in 1918 as
Camp Knox and named after a one-
time secretary of war, Heilry Knox,
lies only a few miles south of the
Ohio river and below the post are a
series of hills.
Thus, natural fortifications all but
surround the reservation. Louisville
is 31 miles away.
Only five miles distant is Bowman
Field, where an important air de-
tachment is located. At Fort Knox
proper there are mechanized cavalry,
mechanized. field artillery, and in-
fantry. Every major branch of de-
fense - and those of the fastest type
--is represented.
About the post the terrain is rug-
ged, wooded and frequently broken.
One of the largest training centers
for reservists in the army's fifth corps
area, the fort is used for summer
training of reserve officers, national
guardsmen and sometimes for the
Citizens' Military Training Corps.
About $4,000,000 was invested or-
iginally in the fort, which was built
to care for a war-time capacity of
60,000; men.
Today only about 1,300 are there-
and these 1,300 will be almost literal-
ly sitting atop more gold than the
treasury's central vaults in Washing-
ton ever held.
DANES LIKE BROADCASTS
COPENHAGEN - O) - Statistical
comparisons made public here show
Denmark with the largest proportion-
al number of radio listeners in Eur-
ope. The country is credited with a
radio public equalling 16 per cent of
its population compared with 14.72
for England, 11.8 Sweden, 10.88 Hol-
land, 5.49 Norway, 1.01 Italy and .90

CHEYENNE, Wyo., July 5 - (A') -
He's a serious, intent, vigorous little
Irishman - this Sen. Joseph C. O'-
Mahoney of Wyoming.
A native New Englander, now wrap-
ped up in the west, O'Mahoney in-
tends to carry on in the senate where
the late John B. Kendrick, Wyo-
ming's "grand old man," left off. He
was once Kendrick's secretary.
From his birthplace in Chelsa,
Mass., O'Mahoney went west, land-
ing in Boulder, Colo., in 1908 "with
$15 and my brother, who was ill."
He became city editor of the Boul-
der Daily Herald. In 1916 he came to
Cheyenne as editor of the then Chey-
enne Leader. Over the phone he
still gives a story with the speed and
conciseness of a trained reporter.
He knows when he has a "story," and
will say "no" when he hasn't.
He studied law, obtaining his de-
gree in Washington, D. C.
One of the first Roosevelt men,
O'Mahoney managed the Roosevelt
campaign in the west in 1932 and
went to Washington as first assistnt
postmaster general under his friend,
'DANCE IRISH' JUDGE RULES
BALLYSHANNON, Ireland-- (A) -
Granting licenses to two dance halls
in Donegal, Justice O'Hanrahan in-
sisted that 20 per cent of the dances
be Irish dances. "They are eminent-
ly suitable to our national tempera-
ment," he said.

James A. Farley. Appointed to fill
the vacancy caused by Senator Ken-
drick's death in November, 1933, he
was sent back to Washington for a
full term by a heavy majority in the
November election.
His work is his hobby. He'd like
to play golf, but hasn't time.
In 1916 he. married Agnes O'Leary
of Winchester, Mass. They have no
children.
Rickenbacker's Crucifix
Carried Since War Days
INDIANAPOLIS, July 5-- (A') - A
crucifix, given him by an 8-year-old
girl, just before he entered the World
war and became the country's great-
est ace, is the constant companion of
Col. Edward V. Rickenbacker.
The colonel carries the crucifix in
the left front pocket of his coat just
over his heart.
"I am not a Catholic, but I would
not be anywhere without this cruci-
fix," Col. Rickenbacker said. "It was
with me in every air battle I had in
the war and it has been with me all
the time since.,"
CO-EDUCATION HIT
CRACOW, Poland (A") - Resolu-
tions adopted by Cracow parents de-
manded the elimination of co-edu-
cation in grammar schools because of
"bad results" hitherto.
